“Cute, sweet and cuddles good”—Heather LaHaise’s son provides the perfect description of Charlotte, the six-month-old Pit Bull girl on our cover, photographed by Amanda Jones during a southeastern swing. This little Southern belle was scooped up from a Columbia, S.C., roadside and taken to Wescott Acres Pet Rescue, where LaHaise found her and took her home. Charlotte now occupies her days napping, playing and “cuddling good,” as well as modeling for LaHaise, an artist who specializes in canine portraits; go online  to see more of her work.
